The Republic of Maynilan

“Strength Through Freedom”

Category: New York Times Democracy

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population586 million



The Republic of Maynilan is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 586 million Maynilanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bakunawa. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Maynilanian economy, worth 40.9 trillion Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 69,729 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, a generation of children conceived in hell and born in strife is growing up inside government-run care villages, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and Leader is famed for giving great back rubs. Crime is totally unknown. Maynilan's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Maynilan is ranked 140,552nd in the world and 5,874th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.45 Obesity Rate.
